I'M THAT POSTA, AAAAAAAAAH (DJP), Wednesday, 9 May 2012 08:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

nothing but love for voice's old music section, nothing but love for voice's current music section really or at least much love to maura for the molanphy/shipley chart/radio geek rotation - if grantland had pop culture writing similar to this the gulf between their sports writing and pop writing wouldn't be quite so huge, could easily see molanphy as a bill barnwell parallel.

the irony that chris ott shares his name with a useful internet acronym that describes his writing just now dawned on me

and i'm not sure i've ever seen lex have any kind of actual insight but as a filter he's very effective, a much better algorithm than pandora or whatever.

― balls,

That's a bit unfair, I dunno about his reviews but i've seen excellent lex posts full of insight that have made me actually want to check out whatever hes writing about.

"for example would LOVE to see the seward version of this"

thanks, but you know what, i'm inspired by marcello. he's basically writing a book on his blog and that seems like the way to go for me. just gonna keep posting essay-length things on my blog when i feel inspired (perhaps linking things thematically as if they were chapters), and when i have enough stuff, maybe see if anyone is interested in publishing. i do like the idea of real books.

i do like the idea of real books.

I do too, and it's my wish to publish one in the next few years, but my conflict has always been how much attention to give non-fiction versus fiction, in addition to not wanting to surrender a quite decent job. I don't know. Confession time: I've been glum the last seven or eight weeks wondering what or the hell I'm writing for; although my blog gets a decent hit count I don't know whether it matters. I still do the occasional professional reviewing job. I just tell myself to keep writing, that the writing is its own defense. I don't ever envision a moment when I'll say the hell with it: I love it too much and I need it, pure and simple. But the question of who the audience is never fades.

http://www.housingworks.org/events/detail/fluxblog-live-10-years-of-perfect-tunes-with-rob-sheffield-emily-gould-mark

The world’s first mp3 blog celebrates its first 10 years with a live event featuring Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone, Pitchfork editor-in-chief Mark Richardson, Emily Gould, Amanda Petrusich, Dick Valentine of Electric Six, Heather D’Angelo of Au Revoir Simone, Amy Rose of Rookie and other special guests. Each guest, along with Fluxblog proprietor Matthew Perpetua, will share a song and talk about it – basically replicating the Fluxblog format on stage.

He's still running with this idea, huh? I wish he would just say "one of" the first instead of THE first. Doesn't diminish Fluxblog's pedigree, but is also factual.

can ILX start referring to itself as "The World's First Internet Message Board" ?

tylerw, Monday, 25 June 2012 19:42 (1 year ago) Permalink

i was gonna say that iirc the little capsule bio on his twitter includes the 'first mp3 blog' line but looking at it now it doesn't, so i guess he changed it pretty recently

happy birthday to my blog

I will give him credit due for keeping the thing going for 10 years with almost no vacations, though. Every time I start a new blog, I'm already sick of it in a month.

would be cooler if he was just up onstage w/ a laptop live-bloggin so hard

tylerw, Monday, 25 June 2012 20:01 (1 year ago) Permalink

this event will only be fun if, in the middle of one contributor's talk, someone else shouts "REMIX!" and takes over the discussion, talking about the song from a totally different starting point/angle

ooh I hope that happens

Johnny Fever, Monday, 25 June 2012 20:10 (1 year ago) Permalink

I genuinely like that idea from an audience and performance point of view, but it's not rly ~fluxblog~. dude probably posts one remix a year, and only one in ten years of something he's already posted

It's the equivalent of seeing the insufferably pretentious art student you used to know end up painting murals on the side of a McDonalds.

God. I'd be geeked too if Alyssa Milano shared something I wrote with gazillions of followers, which is all that's going on here. Whoever this ninety9 person is needs to take a leap.

Look, MP has infuriated me plenty of times for one reason or another, but he's just that way and he's truly harmless and if anyone's going to pick on him I'd rather it be people who actually like him and not some assholes on tumblr.
